Description of Austria yoga & meditation retreat

MoaAlm Mountain Retreat was recently featured in The Guardian, in a list of 'mind, body and spirit breaks'.

This Austria yoga and meditation retreat is most definitely well away from most people’s idea of a busy world, surrounded by snow covered peaks, alpine meadows and the restorative landscapes of East Tyrol. We host this retreat week in our mountain chalet style home, otherwise known as MoaAlm, in the heart of Hohe Tauern National Park.

The maximum number of people on this holiday is ten, sleeping in six bedrooms all with mountain views, our yoga studio also looking out to our surrounding peaks. We also like our guests to feel free to opt in or out of the activities. Everyone finds peace and restoration in different ways and, and so we encourage people to take things at a pace that suits them and just to participate if and when they feel like it.

Our yoga & meditation retreat combines daily yoga & meditation sessions with some walking in the mountains, fully guided by our local experts. These hikes will be no longer than four hours long and, Just as with our yoga sessions, beginners are welcome. We aim to make this a holistic week that is open to everyone. The main aim is simply to offer a perfect mountain break, in quiet surroundings with some natural wellbeing practices. As well as a lot of superb, healthy and restorative food!


During this retreat our certified yoga teacher will be guiding one meditation session & two yoga classes each day. We will start the morning with a guided meditation, followed by your first energising yoga class of the day. After an afternoon walk, or just a chill out if you prefer, we will have a restorative yoga session, to stretch out those muscles after your time on the hills.

Responsible tourism: Austria yoga & meditation retreat


MoaAlm is situated at 1800m, it is 2km up the mountain from the settlement of Taurer, a fragile environment which it is our goal to protect.

Some days may involve carrying a picnic on a hike - guests will be actively involved in carrying out waste. Our water is supplied directly from a mountain spring and our heating system is a brand new 'eco' pellet burning system. The P4 pellet system has won many international quality awards in EU and USA, the most prestigious of all are the Blue Angel and the Austrian Ecolabel. Even in winter our south facing position can also provide supplementary energy from our solar bank.

Natural materials have been used in the construction and renovation of MoaAlm where possible and we have been pleased to find a number of high quality, locally produced materials to use in the refurbishment. The local tradesmen we employ are highly skilled, particularly in mediums of wood, stone and locally-produced felt.


Guests will eat out for lunch on occasion and one evening at locally-run recommended restaurants.

The area also has an excellent ski school and advanced mountain guiding network of instructors that guests may choose to take advantage of. All fresh food and drink will be sourced locally where possible.

We will be employing a team of 4 local full time staff who will receive a generous package of accommodation, food, ski pass and salary. Opportunities will also be available through our staff incentive scheme to participate in training courses annually. This scheme is in place to encourage staff to make this a rewarding full time lifestyle choice that can be sustainable rather than just a seasonal short term option.
